Moorad: It is true that now both Christians and atheists can do good science.
However, it might be that only those who believed in a Creator and wanted to
know His work would develop experimentation.

Not really. Looking at reality it almost appears to be the opposite. YEC'ers for instance are desperate to ignore His Creation.

MooradL One can assume that the question of origins is a scientific question and proceed with it. However, that assumption does not make it so if it isn't.


MooradL If God created out of nothing, how can science come up with that fact from the purely scientific side?

What makes you say that we cannot understand how God might have created ?

Moorad: It is interesting, however, that the notion of creation out of nothing
is creeping into physics. What makes you think that the question of origins
is truly a scientific question? Is that self-evident to you?

As far as science goes that is indeed the case. Do you have any evidence that the question is NOT scientific ?
